Hugo Lloris discusses the lack of experience in Tottenham’s squad

Tottenham WHL

Tottenham Hotspur have one of the youngest squads in the Premier League.

Speaking to PressBureauTV ahead of Tottenham’s game with FK Qarabag, Hugo Lloris has commented on the lack of experience in the Spurs squad in relation to a number of their Premier League rivals.

The French stopper said: “We know we have a young team, but they [the younger players] all played one full season last year. We all know what the manager expects of us, we know what we have to do, and we know how to work.”

Lloris certainly does not sound worried by Tottenham’s lack of experience, admitting that all of the players know their jobs in the team and are capable of completing their roles regardless of their age.

He also mentions that the majority of the young players turned out for a full season last term, which gives them a greater understanding of what is expected despite their relative youth.

The likes of Harry Kane, Nabil Bentaleb and Ryan Mason are now all experienced Premier League and European players, despite being in their early 20’s, and rather than looking to sign proven talent in the summer, Dele Alli, Heung-Min Son and Clinton N’Jie were brought in to continue this youthful squad building.

There is experience in the Spurs team, with Lloris one of the veterans at 28 years of age, but clearly Mauricio Pochettino is continuing with his philosophy of building a side based around potential who will pick up experience whilst playing for the Lilywhites.
